The demand for the helpcopter service was felt more strongly after the Kuki and Meitei communities were caught up in ethnic strife and people have not been able to use roads to travel within the State for fear of violence from the other community.

In the inaugural flight, ten passengers boarded the flight from Churachandpur to Aizawl while five passengers boarded the returned flight. The normal flight duration is about 40 minutes.

Speaking to Akashvani News, an excited traveller said that the launching of helicopter service from Churachandpur in Manipur to Aizawl in Mizoram and vice versa is a major relief for the public who otherwise have to travel about 330 km by road.

The Directorate of Transport, Manipur, has issued the following information in the public interest:
